“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My husband stayed here while in Florence and loved it. The staff was very friendly and it's in a great location. You'll find yourself walking distance to everything and even has a great little beer bar on the corner in case you need to switch it up from all the wine of Italy. :) Would highly recommend!

We stayed for 4 nights. No elevator, so have to lug bags up a few flights of stairs. Clean rooms. Minimal decor. Air conditioned. Free wifi. Decent beds. Room was on the smaller side for 4 persons. Our room was facing the street so it was noisy till about 9pm to 10pm. Breakfast was very minimal. LOCATION is everything for this B&B. Nice pizzeria just next door. Grocery store right under the B&B. 5 minutes walk to Duomo. Enjoyed Florence because we were in the heart of it, all the time.

Thank you very much for staying at the Cimatori and for help us by sharing your experience with your fellow travelers. As most of the buildings in the centre of Florence (our building is from the 16th century) we don't have elevator and thanks to our 43 steps we can race meeting to the guests and help them with the bags :-)
Last November we made a restauration so we wait you come back to the Cimatori to see the new rooms and taste our renewed breakfast with fresh pastries and home made cakes.

Stayed in room with separate private bath. The owner speaks good English and was very helpful in arranging a late checkin for us. For such a central location, the room was surprisingly quiet. Clean room, reasonably comfortable bed, good size. Clean bathroom. Breakfast was DIY. Variety of simple carbohydrates -- croissants, plain rolls, toasting bread, biscuits, melba toasts and cornflakes -- apples and oranges in fridge, simple pots of yogurt, either filter or pod-espresso coffee, sweetened juice, funky-tasting (just Italian?) milk. Overall, highly recommended for basic accommodation. Would stay her again eagerly. (All essential tourist sites within easy walk, world's best pizza-by-the-slice -- "Pizza Toto" -- a few doors away.)

A small A/C room with an external bath right next door; very friendly staff with excellent recommendations for restaurants. Our train was late, but there was no problem being met and shown our room. Breakfast was in a small but pleasant pantry room with coffee, tea, pastries, fruit, cereal, etc. We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed 2 nights in August at Cimatori as a family of 4 we had a room for 4. 2 single beds and a double. The room was clean and had air con. The B & B is on the 2nd floor and there is no lift so keep luggage light! Breakfast was cereal, bakery, juice tea and coffee and lots of it. The B & B is in a perfect location so central and in the middle of everything you would want to see in Florence. We arrived in Florence by train so got a taxi from the station to the B & B which was not too expensive. We would never have found it if we had walked as it was our fist time in Florence.

Very accomadating owners and staff.
We were on the 2nd floor ( I think).. comfortable room. We had a room with an external bathroom which was used exclusively by us. It was pefectly fine. Best part is there is a well stocked kitchen 24/7 with juice / tea / coffee and cereal.
in the midst of all the action hence its a great location and has few good diners close up and a super market right below.
Oh .. How can you forget the Lampredotto cart outside .. a must try.

Room Tip: Try the Lampredotto cart just outside. Good value.

B&B Cimatori is perfectly located in the heart of everything. It was within walking distance to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and every other main attractions nearby. The B&B is located on the 3rd floor with high ceilings in every room. The rooms were decent sized for 2 people. Three things I always check upon entering the rooms: the plumbing, the air conditioning (during summer time), and the beds. The shower, although small but standard for Italy standard, worked very well. The very much needed air conditioning unit was the highlight. It cooled the room within minutes of turning on so we actually turned it off every time we left the room. We had a king sized bed. It was soft and comfy. We didn't get to sit down in the common room for breakfast but we did get to grab a yogurt, bread, and coffee to go. On our last day, the host allowed us to leave our bags behind and check out a little later until the cleaning person came, which was very helpful since we wanted to go to one more spot before our departure. Overall our stay was very pleasant at Cimatori.
